Lord of the Skies is based on the life and work of Amado Carrillo Fuentes, the former leader of the Juarez Cartel. He was nicknamed due to his large fleet of planes which he used to transport drugs to Mexico, Columbia and the United States.
Aurelio and his wife Ximena have three children, Rutila, Heriberto and Luz Marina. He also has his faithful brother Chacorta who helps him in all his illicit businesses. Aurelio would end up being cornered by the authorities after being found as he decides to undergo a face operation in which he supposedly dies, thus causing his empire to fall.
The telenovela was created by Luis Zelkowicz, based on an original idea by Mariano Calasso, and Andrés López.
